the storm, there would have been more of a chance for the romney campaign to talk about the deficit, the debt, the economy. when you have attention drawn away to somewhere else, to something else, it is not to romney's advantage. is that really true given all the statistics have been going improving for the president in relation to the economy? >> well, that is true. i mean, i think rove is already trying to find a reason why romney is going to lose. even karl rove is now having to admit that there were some problems this week that the campaign is not looking good. >> topsy on the body before the body is dead. >> exactly. rather than admitting that maybe the conservative policy prescriptions did not appeal to the american public and bashing the president doesn't appeal to the american public he has to instead go down this path. flip-flopping, when he was a governor of massachusetts, he was a strong proponent of the regional greenhouse gas emission, right up to the point that he decided and declared that he was not going to run for office again, in effect, announcing his run for the

argument how to improve the economy, how to create jobs. the president stresses a bigger role for government than mitt romney does and that's the argument. that's the only point about the spherics of communal effort. no, but it's definitely about jobs and the economy. are you kidding me? the voracity of where jeeps are made in ohio or in china tells you everything you need to know about what this election is all about. this election comes down to the question of whether all the jeeps are going to be made in toledo or whether some of are also going to be made in china. that's the election in a nutshell. the jeep, not the storm, but the jeep is really the symbol of this election. >> howard, if you can be a fly on the wall in boston and chicago at the same time -- >> i've tried. >> -- where do you think they would feel more benefit from the race being frozen, knocked off the a-block and the headline? the president getting to perform the job, be the commander in chief and romney reduced to figure out what to do here and make the campaign events and relief events, when's feeling mo
at flavorboost.com. bill: governor romney criticizing the president for his new idea to get the economy rolling again. a secretary of business position. that is the proposal as of this week. came cain, former candidate for president and president of job creator solutions. how are you doing there, sir, down there in atlanta, georgia. >> doing great, bill. first of all, my heart goes out as to everybody's heart going out to everybody trying to recover from the superstorm sandy. we pray for them because we know it has got to be difficult. some people don't have heat. some people can't get gasoline, food. so our hearts go out to all of the people trying to recover. bill: thank you, sir. i appreciate you saying that. a lot of our colleagues affected by this certainly our friend and neighbors all over the east coast. thank you for that. what about a secretary of business? good idea? >> i, no, not a good idea. first i think governor romney summed it up best. we don't need a secretary of business. we need a president who understands business. there in lies the difference. here's the second point. if it
cain's lead among white men four years ago was half that. >> mitt romney may have a hard time relating to voters, but he is dialed into white men. they are very much attuned to what he is saying about the economy. >> reporter: in fact, in contrast to the president and that mtv town hall, his visits, like the one to "the view," romney sending his wife, ann, instead. his own appearances carefully courting his base. a dozen appearances this year alone with popular conservative host sean hannity. and in canton, ohio, tonight, supporters here hopeful they can overcome the president's small, but stubborn, lead here. the one thing he says that resonates the most? >> resonates most? jobs. >> reporter: jobs, economy, we hear that so much, diane. and with that gender gap among men helping mitt romney, that's why the obama campaign focusing so much on undecided women who very much could hold the key now to a second term for barack obama. diane? high stakes on both sides. >> all right. yeah, david, and great to have you reporting tonight. >>> and as you said, the presidential race keeps coming bac
the economy? juan, on these four fronts, it looks like romney is edging president obama, in some cases big margin, specifically on the economy, 52 to 43 p. are you surprised at that? >> no. clearly the big issue in the election is the economy. and the strength that mitt romney has advertised all along is that he's a businessman. he knows business and he knows how to convey trust to other businessmen so they'll do more hiring with the profits they have. here is the thing that does surprise me is that given the importance of the economy, that the election is even in the fox poll and if you ask americans about the economy, what you see is that, for example, since the mid terms of 2010, the president, the assessment of president obama's handling of the economy has edged up. this goes back to what we were talking about a moment ago with andrea on independents. you see over the last month, president obama's plus 7 among independents. something is going on of the i think the big story is that the surge that we saw with mitt romney after the first debate, that momentum seems to have stopped. >> gr
can balance the budget without cutting tax rates because that's how you get the economy moving. you've got to have growth. i think it's doable. we are going to need cooperation, but i'm hopeful that after the election, maybe they'll sit down and we can talk. >> mitt romney's saying he's going to balance the budget by the end of the second term. that means running deficits for the next eight years. only thing i've seen on his website is $500 billion in cuts in the year 2016. that's not dealing with the debt for another four years. >> if we can move faster and further, we certainly will, but governor romney wanted to propose something he thought we could do. >> he's going to close loopholes to do it. you and i are both familiar are w the studies that say that's not possible or tough to do. let's just say in order to get there, he can't cut by to 20%. he has to cut by 10. maybe 4. would he adjust that promise? >> well, he's certainly willing to talk. when you do tax reform, what you do is you establish the basic parameters, which he's done in this proposal. you get everybody together a
industry, but we have not turned this economy around and president romney will change it because he knows what to do and president obama didn't have the chance to do it. >> i want to stay on this issue of the auto bailout. the headline mitt romney proposed for that op-ed that you see below us, it's been below us now for several minutes. he had suggested the way forward for the auto industry. should he have tried to correct president obama and say i didn't ask? would that have helped him if he was more aggressive in saying i never said that and here's the proof? >> i thought mitt romney did what he had to do in the debate. he looked presidential. didn't sound petty. he wasn't interrupting in a rude way, so i thought he did well in the debate. he demonstrated that he had the the meddle to be president of the united states. and he also knows how to negotiate and to bring something to reality. president obama has not been a good negotiator. he has not been able to even get the democrats in congress on his side on a lot of these issues and a president romney knows how to work the political pro
campaign on pause, but today, it was back to business on the trail. republican mitt romney argued that he would do a better job leading the country's economy. at his first step in wisconsin, president obama appealed for another term in office to finish the job he started. a short time ago, he was given the backing of new york's mayor michael bloomberg, who endorsed the president's citing specifically the issue of climate change. i ask the political reporter for the "washington post" what he would be watching out for. we're entering the portion of the campaign where i start to the people who run for president just have a different team than the rest of us -- different gene than the rest of us. >> there is no doubt about that, but this is an incredibly close election at this point. a lot of people predicted this a year ago, that it would be close, and they've got the election they anticipated. a handful of states will decide if the candid -- will decide it. candidates will be in and out of the state's multiple times. >> what can they actually do at this stage? barack obama, mitt romney, to
romney closed the gap particularly after his debate. women will tell you the economy is the top concern. yesterday's numbers showing a slight rise in the gdp and final unemployment report that comes out before the election. could it have an impact if it shows improvement as well? >> first of all 2.0 percent is enemic and border line recession . i do expect the job numbers to show a huge improvement on friday. it is called bls. and drop the l for the preelection data that is coming out. i don't think it will be a impact. what do you believe? my speeches or your own eyes. and statistics? >> i think romney opened up a two-one edge in who would be the best candidate to handle the economy. i don't think obama will be able to gain with that. >> also in foreign policy. you will hear a lot of revelations that came out about the tragic benghazi attack and we know that cia operatives for help were denied in the attack. you think the investigation has impact on the undecided voters at this point? >> yeah, i think it will to some extent. he doesn't look good in this, but the more affect is frees th

in this newscast is mitt romney has picked up a key endorsement from the "the des moines regis." they say he as a strong record of aachievement in the private and public sectors. romney has made the rebuilding the economy his number one campaign priority, and rightly so. this marks the very first time the paper has endorsed a republican since richard nixon. that was in 1972. joining me now is rick green of "the des moines register." it's great to have you with me. your paper did endorse mitt romney over the weekend. as i read from your blog and other reasons why that happened, you said the transparency was key to that selection. romney recently appeared in ohio claiming that jeep was moving production to china and has doubled-down with a new ad. i want to show everybody what that new ad looks like. >> obama took gm and chrysler into bankruptcy and sold chrysler to italians building jeeps in china. >> chrysler issued a statement last week saying jeep has intention of shifting production of jeep models out of the north america to china. this president said this election is about trust. we have
to jobs and the economy which is mitt romney's strong point in this election as it runs to its conclusion. >> well, it doesn't seem that the news is going to be all that bad even if it is bad because the aap numbers indicated that there were more -- there was more hiring. obviously the trajectory has been good, both on the political side with the polls as well as on the economy. you have the stock market rebounding, you've got manufacturing now at a 15-year high. the numbers out of the manufacturing sector are very good. so much of that attributable to the saving of the auto industry. so i think the momentum clearly is on the president's side and i think a lot of the early voting numbers that we are seeing where the president has a huge advantage in many of these swing states, if not all of them, attributable again to his ground game, i think that the numbers are getting to be baked in a bit. >> they are. the one thing that stood out to me is the washington post abc poll, 48.56% obama, 48.49 romney. i mean, literally, negligible and even in the swing states it's too close to call. i don't

of this economy to really recover. is why i so strongly support mitt romney. the policies he has put into effect will allow our now recover. it is trying to recover and the policies are barack obama are holding back be that recovery. >> the controversy of governor chris christie. some said he should redeclare his support for governor romney prior to tuesday. do you think that is important? would you like to see that? >> no, i know who chris supports. he supports mitt romney. i understand what happens when the president came there. the reality is the president did in the first couple of days of hurricane sandy the president did keep his eye on the ball and did h help, new jersey, and new york and elsewhere. last couple of days, awol on that as well while people are suffering. bodies being discovered. gas lines where people are shooting my goodness and the president of the united states runs off to nevada once again being the campaigner in chief rather than the commander in chief. which s what happened in benghazi. the president's focus is on the cam tape and not on protecting american lives and n
is that the campaign, the romney campaign believes it will all bedecided on the economy and probably any time spent on anything else isn't really going to register with voters and the way the mainstream media has sort of covered up benghazi sometimes you feel like you are talking to yourself when you are talking about it. >> greta: mayor, thank you and -- >> it is a shame because i think -- okay. >> greta: go ahead. >> i said it is a shame because i think this is beyond republican/democrat, beyond this election. these people died. i don't believe they had to die. i think when the full store arery of this comes out this is going to be a really unbelievable scandal. >> greta: mayor, thank you, sir. i know it is cold so especially a big thank you. thank you, sir. >> thank you. >> greta: coming up, a republican running for congress. also the first female fighter pilot to fly in combat. what does she say is the real war on women? she is here to tell you next. also, has the presidential race already been called? really. one analyst has already counted [ dennis ] it only took two minutes for this town to
things at the wall and we'll hope because the economy is not good, people will vote for mitt romney even though they don't like him. >> here is -- >> at the end of the game when they're looking at the numbers and they see they can't close that gap in ohio no matter what they've done and i think last week might have hurt them in ohio -- >> might have? >> they're going -- >> an older reference to the nba, when you're behind by seven or eight points, you start fouling. >> you start fouling. >> the reason you foul, you have got to get the ball back. the other guy gets the foul shot, nobody likes the looks of it. >> they built their entire game plan, the romney campaign, on that over 8% unemployment. once they lost that, and that was really what mitt romney was running on, once you lose that argument, they didn't have any place else to go. they went to welfare reform and extraneous things where they're basically like let's get your voters angry, uncomfortable, get them to come up because they hate the guy. the problem is not enough americans hate barack obama -- >> i'll tell you what i'm impr
romney said bill clinton's program would hurt the economy and kill jobs. sound familiar? turns out, his math back then was just as bad as it is now. because, by the end of president clinton's second term, we created 23 million new jobs, incomes were up, deficits were down. so, iowa, we know our ideas work. we've put them to the test. we also know that their ideas don't work. because they have been tested, also. in the eight years before i came into office, we've tried what they're selling. we've tried giving big tax cuts to the wealthiest of americans. we tried giving insurance companies and wall street a free license to do what they please. here's what we got. fallen incomes, record deficits, and an economic crisis we're still cleaning up after. so we know what works. we know what doesn't. now, governor romney, he's a very talented salesman. and, in this campaign, he's been working overtime to try to repackage the old, bad ideas that didn't work and try to sell them to you as new ideas. he's trying to say that they're changed. but here's the things. iowa, we know what change looks like
about to economic points. >> obama's says he will stimulate the economy with green jobs and mitt romney says defense spending this same principle but on different programs because the priorities are different part of the government gets involved and spend money bet it will create jobs. but when you take the money from other uses, from taxpayers comment and it redistributes john: it may be a good thing to pay for defense it matters how would is spent? >> judge by the outcome. when someone says they create 1 million jobs that means his program is very expensive. they could have been doing something else it is suspect when they judge a program based on jobs created. john: moving on i was struck that if we need regulation you cannot start a bank in york raj. what is wrong? >> hewlett-packard's did start them major company and so did steve was the act. he is right you cannot start a bank because of regulation maybe we should question not begrudge but the regulation. >> to take a more serious example wal-mart has difficulty starting a bank with the various regulations as they are facing. i wo
but it showed that consumers are feeling better about the economy. >> is a big topic on the campaign trail. both candidates land in ohio today. governor romney visits seven states, including a rally in ohio tonight with 100 supporters, politicians, and celebrities. in virginia last night, a makeup before hurricane sandy, he argued that the resident is running out of steam. >> he was talking abut saving characters on "sesame street" and playing word games with my name and attacking me on a regular basis, a tax he knows are not true. >> president obama also visits the seven states between now and election day with a focus on ohio, is must-win state. he will be there every day between now and the election. >> al qaeda as been decimated, osama bin laden is dead. we have made real progress these past four years. >> how will it shakeout on tuesday? >> romney has a 50-50 chance to win the popular vote. it is harder to see him winning the electorial vote. >> a possible split verdict from a nation deeply divided, and anxious to end this very long campaign. >> baltimore city police are investigating a sho

comfortable on the economy which obviously is the key issue in this campaign. i think what governor romney did at the debate, he passed the threshold test. he looked like he could be president. >> wanted to look at the electoral college map. we will put that up on the screen. talk to us about this. oh we don't have it? well, it has changed dramatically, hasn't it? >> yes. in the last few weeks we are seeing a little tightening. president obama still has the edge. we say he is ahead or leaning toward victory in states with 237 electoral votes. governor romney in states with 206. some of the states will be the do decisive ones. a state like florida is leaning a little in governor romney's direction. but overall it is the eight states that will determine the next president. >> how many days before folks actually go to the polls do you think the polls you are doing have the closest prediction value to what the outcome may be historically? >> it is very difficult to answer that, especially when you put it in the context of historically. it is election month in ohio. a third of the voters have sent

of the solution in -- i hope to keep us cut of additional wars. governor romney said he was ready for us to come out of afghanistan. i did not think there is much daylight between governor romney and president obama on the war. the real difference is on the economy. i will try to keep us out of war in syria and keep us out of the intifada -- out of pre-emptive war around the country. there are probably 10 of us who are reticent to give the president unlimited authority for war. they believe congress declares war and not the president. there are probably a few democrats who believe that. there is a bipartisan libertarian, constitutional caucus on war issues. i have been working hard with many on the other side. i worked with senator why then, and senator -- senator wyden and senator udall and others. >> some have indicated they think you will run for president in 2016. any interest in seeking higher office? >> that depends on what happens next tuesday or a week from tuesday. i want to be involved in the national debate. i want to transform the republican party that is -- into a party that is comp
romney's message is hitting home. women care about the economy, not about these silly distractions that obama keeps talking about. that's what mitt romney and republicans have been saying and i think women are starting to believe it. >> bill: so are you saying that women's health care that abortion, that contraception, that child care, those are all distractions? >> that's not what i'm saying. that's what the [ inaudible ] are saying. every time one of those issues is brought up, they don't want to answer it the question you see it with mitt romney his campaign comes back and says don't even worry about his birth control views, he wants employers to decide. but this is not a big deal women care about the economy. and they said that with abortion, they have tried to gloss over his running mate's more extreme abortion position by saying women don't care about this, and what i'm saying is it must be working because women are slowly crawling back over towards myth -- >> bill: towards mitt romney and i know you are reporting on what we have been told that the
